Complexity of the product.


Virtual machine experience

Detailed explanation1: Cost of complexity is a term often used to describe the costs that are caused by introducing new product platforms and products, as well as managing the variety of products produced. Many different products would cause a high cost of complexity, fewer and more similar products a low cost of complexity.
Detailed explanation2: Product complexity can be e.g. the number of products, the number of components they consist of or raw materials used. Structure complexity can be the number of factories, markets, warehouses or suppliers. If poorly managed, complexity leads to increased costs and decreased customer value proposition.
Detailed explanation3: We incorporated knowledge into the BashirThomson complexity measure PC (Bashir & Thomson, 1999a). Their approach decomposes product functions into hierarchies and computes product complexity as PC = ∑ j = 1 l F j j, where Fj is the number of functions at level j and l is the number of levels.
